HeY hEy!!!


Yeah up in WI it's still in and cool to run, and more popular than 1/8th, but trucks is for sure more popular during weekly racing till bigger events come then it's pretty even but trucks have buggies beat by like 5-10.......

Florida has a couple tracks where they still get about 8 cars. But other places something like 30 1/8 scalers

electric pretty much dies is summer around here. Decent turnout of trucks some times but no 2wd buggys. Good turnout locally for buggys indoor. But in summer 1/8 scale is where its at.

Out here from what I gather there are alot of gas vehicles but the electric class didn't have as many. up in the state capital the 2wd buggy class actually has a great turnout since they spec off of 19 turn motors, makes the class not a snooze fest but allows newer drivers access since it isn't all out mod.

I race 4wd, so you can imagine how low the turnout can be!

Here in Central Iowa 2wd mod is by far the biggest class. The stock class is also large, but the faster guys never race it, and thusly it's become a true 'sportsman' class. Stock buggy is however still one of the bigger classes.

I'm like Cain.... I love the 4wd....but I never get to run it. Apparently all that traction and driveability scares everybody away!
